true, but not all Me262's were bombers, they did have pure fighter version's too. the holocaust was a moral and strategic atrocitey, but... the Maus wasnt meant to be used as a battle tank, it was meant to plug holes in coastal defensives. and lets be honest, the maus was immune to pretty much all air to ground rockets launched by tank busters, and if it was present on DDay, well... you know .

Yes, but when you have the german industry allready puting out less tanks and aircraft then the combined allied powers, the last thing you do is concentrate energy on insane projects like that...

If German technology was so wonderful, why didn't they make a succesful amphibious landing in Brittain? Hitler was a fruitcake, and he squandered his money on expensive toys rather than things like, oh, I don't know, PETROLEUM? What does it matter if you have the best tanks, if none of them have fuel? Who cares about your wonder weapon that is 200 miles in the rear because it's transport ran out of gas? And those tanks didn't seem to do so well on the eastern front, what with the crews freezing/starving to death, and all. It's too bad he couldn't mass produce all these "wonder weapons", what with his production capacity bombed to hell by American and British long range bombers.
As far as the eastern front, simply providing meat-grinders like Stalingrad was a tremendous boost to the Allies. The eastern front was this huge pit that swallowed men, material, dollars, and time. Without it, as has been said, we'd still be fighting the damned war. Luckily, Hitler's madness made it inevitable that he would attack the russians, thus losing it all.

Hitler was both the catalyst of the great German war machine of the 30s/40s and the reason for its downfall.

Had a reasoned and well balanced leader been in charge of Germany, things would have been very different today, with possibly a German-Soviet hegemony existing over Europe and Asia. The US would have retreated back into isolationist mode and you'd have a German-Soviet-Japanese domination over the old world. Perhaps in time Germany and the Soviet Union would have went to war but not when it happened in history.

It's true that Hitler admired the British Empire and probably would have accepted a separate peace with Great Britain, seeing us as fellow Aryan peoples. However, the reason he stopped the Wehrmacht from destroying the trapped allied forces in Dunkirk was nothing to do with any sentiment on his part. Hitler was persuaded by Goering that the Luftwaffe could do the job by itself and Hitler assented to this, not wanting to risk his valuable panzers in possible pitched street battles.

Doppleganger is right, Hitler listened to much to Goering .......I would have pulled on his leash and let my panzers mow over the BEF and remaining French.
